5 fresh ways to rock a ponytail

5 Ways to Rock The Ponytail This Spring

Who doesn't love a good comeback? Though it's usually the stuff of last-minute hair fixes, the ponytail is officially back on the spring hairstyle roster and making a bid for MVP status. But what exactly is it about the the pony that champions other 'dos? Besides it being simply the easiest and fastest way to way to pull your hair back (and ideal for beating the heat), ponytail hairstyles are seriously versatile—a fact proven most recently at the the fall shows: From the ultra-sleek to messy-chic, the pony ruled the runways. And while the style may seem more routine than renegade, just a few simple switch ups and your ponytail gets a marked makeover. So what's the key to keeping it all in place? The right ponytail holder, says Matt Fugate of Sally Hershberger Downtown. "It's all in the band—I recommend Blax Hair Elastics. Droopy ponytails are usually caused by worn out elastics, so make sure you use one that's good quality and snag-free." Here's to ponying up this spring!

Soft and LowThe low ponytail looks best when it's a little loose and romantic. Starting with a volumizing gel or texturizing spray, blow dry the hair straight and create a center part. Keep volume at the crown for a little bit of a '60s vibe, and pull the hair back into a low ponytail at the nape. Wrap a piece of hair around the elastic and secure underneath with a bobby pin. If you're starting with dry hair, tap some volumizing powder or spray dry shampoo into the roots at the crown, then pull hair back into a low pony.
